Happy Accident: Comix Artists and UW20

Comix Artists Work with UW20 Students

Five graphic novelists spoke about their creative process in Gelman Library 301 on Monday, October 6. This was the third annual event held in junction with Gelman’s Graphic Novel Collection. According to Dr. Heather Schell, organizer and Assistant Professor of Writing, the panel brought together artists, writers, students and community members in a dynamic exploration of comic arts, new literacies, and collaborative writing. Earlier in the day, graphic novelist Jesse Reklaw led a select group of UW20 students in a hands-on cartooning workshop, in which they illustrated their dreams.

The event was co-sponsored by Gelman Library and the University Writing Program.
